I would think not. Is anything else rattling or just the door?
If you are still under warranty take it in.

is it when the window is down because i let my little bro borrow my truck and when he returned it (Muddy as heck) the window now rattles in the door when rolled down. I haven't had time to see if it is off track or whatever.

Make sure this bolt is tight. It holds the window track in place. If it is loose or missing the window track will rattle like crazy.

Theres a bolt on the door jam that comes loose and causes the doors to rattle.
If you open the door you'll see a bolt head below the lock mechanism (I think it holds the power window motor). I loosened them up, put a couple drops of Lock-Tight on, and retourqued them. Have'nt had rattling in a year now.

Same here, always the cheapest fix. However now I'm getting a ''clunk'' as the window approaches the top of the seal. I've watched and it lines up fine, the noise seems to be inside the door. tried the track bolt already, any thoughts?

Honest patriotic american not trying to hijack luckytrd's thread, but it would have had the same title anyhow.

Is Lock-tite permanent?

Not permanent just damn close....

Blue is medium/heavy duty and will hold for a long time but does not require heating to remove.
Green is about the same strength as blue but has the ability to penetrate the threads after assembly and may require heating to release.
RED is the grand mama of hold, definately heavy duty and in most cases it will hold extremely well and in some instances will require heating to release.

These are the general purposes of loctite, there are other variants but these are the most common....

I am having this same problem (rattling) on the passenger side. I checked the bolt and it is tight.
It also makes a few noises as the window is going up or down, it is more pronounced down about half way; almost like it is catching on something.

I don't want to take it in, any ideas what else it could be?

Take the door panel off and double check that the window is in it's rails.
